Having taken Bill Dement's class while an undergrad at Stanford, I've always been aware of the need for sleep.

My theory is that we all have a baseline level of resilience that gets drained by hassles and problems, and recharged by positive events and people.

Not getting enough sleep drains your resilience before the day even begins, which means you're starting out with an empty tank.

I think the old Russian folktale said it best..."The morning is wiser than the evening."
